LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- When photos surfaced recently of LeAnn Rimes looking very thin, the country star didn’t waste any time defending her new slim shape against her critics out there.
LeAnn took to the Twitterverse on Tuesday writing, “I am completely healthy! If people only saw how much I ate.”
“I don’t care about the dumb articles,” she Tweeted yesterday. “Maybe those people should start taking care of themselves…inside and out.”
LeAnn then added, “Maybe it’s time for a nude pic so peeps can see how I look nowhere near what these stupid pics are trying to make me look like, LOL.”
The country superstar, who donned a bikini for the popular cover of “Shape” magazine’s October 2010 issue, credits her finely toned physique to a combination of punches and fancy footwork.
“The funny thing is that all I’ve added into my routine is a dance class, like twice a week,” LeAnn told Access Hollywood of her svelte body at the MusiCares Tribute to Barbra Streisand in Los Angeles in February. “I love dancing. And I kick-box like, all the time. I love boxing. It’s my thing. That burns some serious calories!
“I’m not like, a diet person,” she continued. “I eat what I want, drink what I want, no big deal. I just am active.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, LeAnn became engaged to actor Eddie Cibrian in December 2010.
